BRAVO SERIES UNCOVERS THE UPS AND DOWNS OF "BEING BOBBY BROWN"

Released by Bravo

Bravo's much-anticipated unscripted series "Being Bobby Brown" premieres Thursday, June 30 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT, and will be followed immediately by episode two at 10:30 p.m. The eight-episode, half-hour series is an introspective look at the Grammy-winning Bobby Brown, and his life as a husband, father, and friend. His own wife dubbed him the "King of R&B" and this is their royal story told from Brown's heart. This real-life "fly-on-the-wall" look at Bobby Brown's world will reveal deeply personal moments that vary from humorous to heartwarming and which are, at times, emotionally charged.

"Being Bobby Brown" will follow Brown and the rest of his immediate and extended family over the course of six months. Shot documentary-style, the series will reveal the close bonds Bobby has with his wife and children and unveil what his life is like both in the spotlight and behind closed doors. The series will show Brown as a family man and husband, apart from the front-page scandals and allegations that have plagued, and at times overshadowed, his successful music career. Viewers also get a deep look into Brown's relationships with his wife, Whitney Houston, their daughter, Bobbi Kristina, and La Princia and Bobby, Jr., his children from a previous relationship. "Being Bobby Brown" will also uncover the direction Brown intends to take his career and introduce the important role that his brother and manager, Tommy Brown, plays as "his brother's keeper" in his work and his life.

Over the course of the series, viewers will experience the highs and lows of "Being Bobby Brown," from the highs of traveling with the Browns on their family vacation to London where Bobby meets the Dalai Llama to a trip to the Bahamas where Bobby and family seek peace and personal time together. Private moments will also be shared including a romantic day date with Bobby and Whitney at a spa, as well as their love of food from dining on steaks at fine restaurants to eating flapjacks at the local pancake house. Equally balanced will be the low points of Bobby's life, including one of many visits to the courtroom.

Bobby: Whitney's Troubles Behind Her

Bobby Brown is confident that wife Whitney Houston has put her troubles behind her,

Im very confident,says Brown. 'Yes, very confident. Shes my lady and shes doing wonderful and everything about her spirit right now is just great. So we're enjoying life again.'

Whitney recently emerged from her second stint in rehab.

'Its a team effort whenever somebody is ill,' says Bobby. 'It takes two to make everything work. So I have to be there for her just like she was there for me when I went through my rehab stint. She was right there. So I have to be there for her. Shes doing wonderful, by the way, and shes going to start recording again.'

Bobby hopes working on her next album, which will reunite her with long-time mentor Clive Davis, will prove the perfect tonic.

'Hopefully I will get to work with her on this album again,' he said. 'I'm just looking forward to her just being herself.'

There is a possibility we'll see part of Whitney's personal struggles when 'Being Bobby Brown,' his new reality show, debuts June 30 on Bravo.

Bobby wouldnt rule it out. 'I dont know. We were shooting during the time that she started rehab so. you'll see a transformation of just coming out of rehab into full blown-out woman again.'

Bobby promises the reality won't be sugar-coated. Any arguments on camera? 'Yes, there is a bunch of those. We argue like ten times a day, so...'

What are the arguments about?

'Where is my socks? Who moved my glasses? Just little things.'

Theres one area thats off-limits, however. The bedroom.

'I shut the door for that,' says Bobby. 'Cant come into the bedroom. I dont let anyone in the bedroom. Thats the wild house. The Brown's wild house. Im swinging from chandelierst. Im doing the good things. I havent kept her this long for nothing.'

Two members of Bobby Brown's entourage injured during fight

A late-night fight at a popular Buckhead restaurant sent two members of singer Bobby Brown's entourage to the hospital with knife wounds.

The incident occurred shortly after 1:30 a.m. at Justin's Restaurant and Bar in the 2200 block of Peachtree Road, according to Atlanta police Detective D.L. Dixon.

Brown was with a group of people celebrating a family member's birthday at the restaurant, which is owned by music producer Sean "P. Diddy" Combs, when a group of four or five men got into an altercation with Brown's party.

Two members of Brown's group were either stabbed or cut during the fight, Dixon said.

Shayne Brown, 21, was taken to Piedmont Hospital and Kelsey Brown, 20, was being treated at Atlanta Medical Center. Both men were in stable condition.


Bobby Brown was apparently not involved in the fight, and was not injured. Dixon did not know whether Brown's wife, singer Whitney Houston, was at the restaurant.

Dixon said detectives had not determined what started the fight.

"There was a lot of music and talking going on," Dixon said. "It could have been something as simple as a bump, you know, somebody bumped into each other."

The suspects fled the restaurant following the fight. Dixon said police were looking for a tan or silver SUV, possibly a GMC Yukon or Cadillac Escalade, with Georgia tag number EG946D or ED946G.

An attorney representing the restaurant held a late-morning press conference to discuss the incident.

"Mr. Combs wants the public to know that this incident was totally unrelated to Justin's Restaurant or to Bad Boy Entertainment," attorney Vincent Dimmock said. "The restaurant maintains the highest level of security. Our first priority is and always will be our customers."

He didn't know how many security personnel were working at the restaurant Sunday night.

Dimmock said the restaurant has been running a Sunday night open mic promotion called "Lip Service."

"It's a relatively new event," Dimmock said. "Generally, when you have performers or entertainers in town, they like to come by and sing a song or two just because they like the environment."

Dimmock said Brown performed briefly Sunday night.

Dimmock said the fight was the first such incident that he could recall since the restaurant opened seven years ago.

Brown hopes show will boost image

Whitney Houston is doing well and is "very happy" after returning from rehab, husband Bobby Brown said Friday.

Houston went to rehab because of a marijuana habit, he said: "I'm really proud of her. It helps both of us, because I've been in recovery for almost two years."

Brown spoke to reporters at the downtown Ritz-Carlton Friday to promote his new reality show, "Being Bobby Brown," which launches June 30 on Bravo.

On Thursday, he, Houston and all four of his kids went to a Buckhead studio to shoot publicity shots and commercials for the series. They also celebrated his father "Pop's" birthday.

The show is culled from footage shot over more than two years of Brown, Houston and his kids going about their daily lives — at Buckhead restaurants like the Palm and the Dave & Buster's in Duluth. It also won't shy away from Brown's legal troubles.

Brown admits the show is partly a bid to restart his career. "I'm just an entertainer, man, that is trying hard to get back in."

He also hopes the show will put to rest all the gossip about him based on his run-ins with the law. He says he's "sick and tired of being sick and tired of all the garbage that's out there."

Brown back in court after ignoring order to set up college fund

CANTON, Mass. - Singer Bobby Brown appeared in family court here Wednesday and was given two days to prove he has the income to fund educational trusts for two of his children.

Judge Paula Carey gave Brown until Friday to produce contracts showing he has enough money coming in to establish the trust funds he'd promised for the two children he had with Stoughton's Kim Ward.

Brown, a Roxbury native, returned to the court where Carey sentenced him last June to 90 days in prison for missing three months' worth of child support payments. That sentence was immediately suspended after Brown made back payments totaling about $15,000, but he still could serve prison time if he defaults on his obligations to the children.

Brown was also jailed for a day in March 2004 after he failed to pay $63,500 he owed Ward. He was released after making the payment.

The singer was initially summoned to Norfolk County Family Court in March after falling behind on his child support payments, according to Patrick McDermott, the court's Register of Probate.

But by Wednesday, he'd caught up on his payments, although he still hadn't established the educational trust funds he'd promised to set up years ago, McDermott said.

Brown told Carey he had money coming in from reality TV and music projects, and Carey gave him two days to produce the contracts. Brown is expected to make four payments totaling $160,000 within the next six months to establish the trusts.

Brown said he didn't know payments on the education funds hadn't started.

``I've been shooting a television show and recording an album, so it's hard,'' he said. ``For me, it's easy to not know that a payment is not paid because other people are supposed to pay them.''

Singer back in court after ignoring order to set up college fund

CANTON, Mass. R&B singer Bobby Brown was back in a Massachusetts probate court today for allegedly ignoring an order to set up a college fund for two of his children.

A new agreement was hammered out calling for Brown to make the first payment to the education account by the end of the month.

Brown was jailed for one day last March for failing to pay $63,500 he owed to Kim Ward of Stoughton, the mother of two of his children. He was released after paying the debt, but was also ordered to start the education fund.

Brown told reporters he was busy filming a new reality TV show and recording a new album, and thought someone else was taking care of making payments to the fund.

Singer Bobby Brown Back In Court Over Kids: Case Revolves Around Education Fund

BOSTON -- Singer Bobby Brown is back in Massachusetts, but not for entertaining purposes.

The singer, who is married to Whitney Houston, was in court Wednesday morning.

Brown arrived at Norfolk Probate Court in Canton, Mass., to deal with allegations that he failed to fund his children's education.

Last year, Brown spent a night in jail for failing to pay child support. He is reportedly up to date on those payments. But at that time, the judge also ordered Brown to get a life insurance policy and start an education fund for his 12-and 14-year-old children.

In question was whether he had started that education fund. A new agreement was hammered out calling for Brown to make the first payment to the education account by the end of the month.

Brown was jailed for one day last March for failing to pay the $63,500 he owed to Kim Ward of Stoughton, the mother of two of his children. He was released after paying the debt, but was also ordered to start the education fund.

Brown told reporters he was busy with work and recording a new album, and thought someone else was taking care of making payments to the fund.
